The biocatalytic enantioselective reduction of 4'-methoxyacetophenone to (S)-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethanol was successfully conducted in a hydrophilic IL-containing co-solvent system using immobilized Rhodotorula sp. AS2.2241 cells. Of all the tested ILs, the best results were observed with the novel IL 1-(2'-hydroxy)ethyl-3-methylimidazolium nitrate (C(2)OHMIM.NO(3))...
